    Regardless of whether people like Taylor or not, let’s just keep in mind the song’s purpose and SU2C. That beautiful little boy’s picture at the end of the video is just heartbreaking.

    an opinion Says:

    She is very sweet and nice. But she is not singer or songwriter.
    She can’t sing. She uses acting techniques to indicate emotion rather than showing it through her voice because she CAN’T sing.
    With all that said it is great that she uses her fame to help others.

    This is so much bigger then the talents of Taylor Swift this post is about a beautiful little boy who died from a deadly disease that is ravishing this country so I don’t care what you simple minded people have to say about taylor swifts voice but don’t you dare come on here disrespecting that baby’s memory RIP Little Ronan this was a beautiful song written beautifully and performed beautifully

    What a beautiful song. If she sang and wrote more songs like this I feel like far more people would like her.

    A beautiful song written for a beautiful little boy. <3.

    Anyone who sang this song would be shaky, insert adjective here. Shoot, I can barely listen and watch without a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye.

    Listen to it again and hear it not as TS saying/singing it, but from the perspective of a mother or father who have lost their little boy.

    Ronan’s mom co-wrote this song. Very touching.

    KissThis Says:

    I feel awful cause I really want to listen to it and get the beautiful message of the lyrics, but I can’t stomach Taylor’s singing. Her off pitch, weak voice ruins the whole song. I’m not trying to hate, I’m sure it’s a lovely song, but I just can’t listen to her.

    Porche Says:


    Then just don’t listen or open the news about Taylor Swift it’s simple. Why you waste your time to open the news and comment if can’t stomach her?

    KissThis Says:

    @Porche: I want to give her a chance and be a fan because a lot of people do like her, but I guess her music just isn’t for me. I commented because it’s a beautiful song.

    I thought Taylor’s performance was beautiul it’s hard to sing a song like that and she was crying also which affects your voice

    Beautiful song. His mum co-wrote it, so it’s sung from her perspective. That said, I hope this doesn’t get played on the radio – it’ll get me bawling again and I’ll have to pull over!

    Dave Says:

    “Fake”…my heart goes out to you…We know the parents of little Ronan very well and your comment is unneccessary and only defines the pain you are in if you insist on spreading such hatred. The song is taken from one of the mom’s blog posts and Taylor was inspired to turn it into a song. I hope you find your own purpose that brings you joy instead of sitting in your own personal hell, projecting the pain that exists inside you. Find some meaning in your life so that you can start living for something bigger than yourself. All the best to you.

    Rockstar Ronan Says:

    Ronan was three when he passed away (3 days shy of his fourth birthday). Check out for the love story and unbreakable bond between a mother and son that inspired Taylor’s beautiful new song. All proceeds from this song will go straight to the foundation ( Spread the word! Every child deserves to grow up.

    I don’t understand all this hate on her. She’s doing an amazing thing for all this poor people with this terrible disease. And the haters are just spreading more hate and stupidity, why don’t you donate for Ronan Foundation? I did and I’m feeling better, you should do the same.

    I am not a big fan of Taylor, but this song is simply lovely. The words, her production, and even her song really touched me. I hope Ronan is smiling and at peace.

    If that song doesn’t bring a tear to your eye then you must not have a heart. Awesome.
